Since man learnt to write, we have been devouring bits of writing and entering new worlds, creating new words and worlds using our voices and any writing implements that are available to us. Fiction, at it’s core, allows us to communicate with each other and even with strangers. It opens doors to telling our own stories through characters and lets us peep into the lives of strangers who we then learn to love as we turn page after page.
We need fiction because we need escapism and information. We need it because we need a reassurance that we’re going to be okay.
Thanks for reading and Happy New Year (or Happy End of January),
